Genesis Announces Massive Box Set of BBC Recordings

Genesis has announced a career-spanning box set compiling material recorded for the BBC.

BBC Broadcasts will be released on March 3 in 53-track five-CD and 24-track three-LP versions, collecting sessions recorded by the band between 1970 and 1998. The set features contributions from all three of the group’s lead singers: Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins and Ray Wilson.

You can see the full track listing below.

The BBC recorded Genesis many times over the years, including radio broadcasts and in-studio sessions. However, the band has released only some of this material; their 2008 box set Genesis 1970-1975, for example, included three early songs (“Shepherd,” “Pacidy” and “Let Us Now Make Love”) tracked for the BBC Night Ride program in February 1970. All three also appear on BBC Broadcasts.

Nick Davis, who has worked frequently with Genesis as a producer, engineer and surround-sound mixer, first teased the BBC box set in late September. He and founding keyboardist Tony Banks curated the collection, which is packaged with a 40-page booklet.

“So, there is BBC stuff coming out, especially that Lyceum gig, which is very good,” he told Fairfax City Music. “It’s a lot of material, some from very early all the way through to the very end, I think. … There’s no multitracks, so there’s only stereo or mono. It’s mastering, trying to make it sound as good as we can. Sometimes it’s sonically compromised, but I think all of it sounds OK.”

Genesis also worked with the BBC for the 2014 documentary Genesis: Together and Apart, which featured a reunion interview with the classic ’70s quintet: Gabriel, Collins, Banks, Mike Rutherford and Steve Hackett. Seven years after that project, the band’s popular trio lineup (Banks, Rutherford and Collins) reunited onstage for The Last Domino?, their first tour since 2007.

Amid that trek, since described as their farewell run, Genesis released the 2021 best-of package The Last Domino? – The Hits, which mirrors the tour’s standard set list.
